I wanted to update my experience with using WIFI with the BBB, version
1.2.1 and document my problems. I'm using the ASUS N10 wireless FOB.
The USB hub is a Belkin F4U040 powered 4 port hub. I configured the N10
to use DHCP because I plan to take this on the road for demonstration
When I boot the BBB the N10 starts working and it tells me what my IP
address is. The data light starts blinking and the node is operating.
After about 1/2 hour I loose the network connection and the data light
on the N10 goes out. The IP address is the local host 127.0.0.1. If I
shutdown and reboot the BBB it still tells me it is 127.0.0.1 and the
data light is out. To get it working again I have to shutdown and
change the port on the hub that the N10 is plugged into. Then it boots
up and works fine with the proper IP address for another 1/2 hour. If I
connect the N10 directly into the BBB without the URIx and node radio
connected there are no problems.
The first thing that comes to mind is to try another hub but I don't
have any problems with the URIx when it is connected to the hub. I know
there are several people using WIFI without any problems. I was
wondering if anyone else is experiencing the problems I am seeing.
